Gantz tells US defense chief IDF Gaza operation will continue
Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Tuesday updated US defense chief Lloyd Austin on the sate of combat in the Gaza conflict. He said: that Operation Guardian of the Walls would continue until Hamas was “deterred for the long term” and “long-term quiet is achieved.” He pointed out that Hamas continues to fire rockets at civilian populations.
Israel handed over to the Biden administration classified intelligence revealing Hamas’s clandestine operations in the tower building that Israel bombed last week. AP and Al Jazeera staffs left the building after they were warned by Israel that it was about to collapse.
